Colombia’s Daniel Elahi Galan moved into the third round of Wimbledon after Spain’s Roberto Bautista Agut, the No 17 seed, withdrew before the match at the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club in London on Thursday.

Bautista Agut announced that he had tested positive for COVID-19 on Thursday which ended his Wimbledon campaign.

Bautista Agut is the third player on the men’s side to pull out after testing positive for COVID-19 after Matteo Berrettini and Marin Cilic.

Daniel Elahi Galan, ranked No 109, will face the winner of the match between Canada’s Denis Shapovalov, the No 13 seed, and American Brandon Nakashima for a place in the round of 16.

This is Galan’s best performance at Wimbledon and equals his best result at a Major – a third round finish at the 2021 French Open.
